Sample Wishlist for a Woman 

(Because the is is a sample from an actual client, the items may no longer be available for purchase.)

Based on the closet edit and our recent shopping trip, here are suggestions for the key pieces to round out your new wardrobe. Enjoy!

Yes! We found a navy/purple bag that's perfect for your entry into using a handbag instead of a shopping bag. It will hit at your hips which adds bulk to your lower half, balancing your body. Kelsi Dagger is a hot designer- cool, but not ubiquitous. A quality item for everyday and the color adds visual interest, but is still very practical.

Love this dress for you because it flatters your body, is edgy, sophisticated and conservative enough for the office. The sleeves mean no cardigan necessary and it would be fantastic with the Frye boots on a rainy day.  

Ame and Lulu wet swimsuit bag. Perfect for your workout clothes after the gym.

This might be the most important piece to elevate your wardrobe. Of course you don't want to carry your workout clothes in your "nice bag" after the gym. But, that shouldn't keep you from carrying a bag that complements your outfit and completes your wardrobe. This wet bag allows you to place items in separate compartments and seal them up nicely. It is discreet (other colors are also available) and affordable. Wash it and put it in your new Kelsi Dagger bag.

You requested it. We found it. This cami evens out your body to make any top, especially a sheer blouse, look sleek and sophisticated. Because you have a larger bust, the straps are wider allowing you to wear a bra. You can also throw it in the washing machine. A go to item, for sure.  

Also, because you purchased other items at the Limited during our shopping trip, you can use the Limited coupon you received from the store to stock up on colors.

Adding visual interest to your lower half evens out your proportions and these are too cool to pass up. They are the unique blend of edgy and sophisticated, depending on how you style them. They'd be great with your tall Frye boots, colored flats or the motorcycle boots you purchased on our shopping trip. Dress up or down with the long cardigans you purchased or the leather jacket that is on the way. Ideally, go with the brown boots and leather jacket or motorcycle boots and cardigan. That will keep the leather in check.

We love this skirt because it looks challenging to style, but is actually very practical. Plus, the cut and print balance out your proportions. Try a white t-shirt, grey cardigan and red or black flats for warm weather. In the cooler months, pair with your Frye boots, the same t-shirt and a chocolate brown cardigan. Alternatively, a black crew neck sweater and black knee high boots with tights are more sophisticated, but still very comfortable.

SO close to the pair you tried on at All Saints, but for hundreds less. As we discussed, leather is all the rage this year, especially pants with leather embellishment. The faux leather patches elongate you and give the illusion of visual symmetry. Plus, it's a big leap to go from no leather to leather pants. This is a comfortable way to ease into this trend wearing something that makes you feel confident while looking incredible. Pair with your motorcycle boots, colored flats or the brown Frye boots for an edgier style. Or, wear with strappy black heels or booties for a more sophisticated approach.

And finally, the beloved Frye boots. These are going to be a go to for sure. You can wear them over the knee for a more sophisticated look and slouched for a more casual approach. The dip in the back elongates your legs and the color draws attention to your lower half. 

Because they are Fryes, they'll last forever and elevate the most casual and inexpensive outfits. Between these and the Kelsi Dagger bag, basic leggings, a t-shirt and a cardigan will feel put together. Add either a necklace, bracelet or scarf and you are good to go for Sunday brunch, a night out with your husband and everything in between. 

We hope you found this Wishlist as exciting as it was for us to create.

Also, we hope that your personal style plan is a helpful reference as you build a wardrobe that is reflective of your style: sophisticated, edgy, urban and tasteful.
